I'm applying for a job and I need two references for the application. I'm not able to get in touch with one of them before it's due. Would it be bad form if I put them down and sent them an email to let them know I've done it, instead of contacting them and asking prior to doing it?
Related question, does it look bad if you say 'no' to 'can we contact your references?'? I don't have anything to hide from this job that I'm applying for, it's more that I don't want my current employer knowing I've applied for this job.
